"Pump It Up" is a song by American hip hop artist Joe Budden. It was released on May 8, 2003 as lead single from his self-titled debut. It was featured in 2 Fast 2 Furious, You Got Served, as well as the trailer for the comedy Meet the Blacks. The song was also featured on Madden NFL 2004, and peaked at number thirty eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and number thirteen in the United Kingdom.

Produced by Just Blaze, the beat was originally turned down by Beanie Sigel, Freeway and Jay-Z before Joe Budden used it.[2] It contains a sample from "Soul Vibrations" as performed by Kool & the Gang.[3]


The official remix is a mash-up of two beef freestyles by Jay-Z & Joe Budden against the other person. The rapper's freestyle of the song is included in the deluxe edition of his compilation album, The Hits Collection Vol. 1.

On December 12, 2015, during a guest appearance on an episode of "Abstract Radio", a Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music hosted by rapper Q-Tip, Just Blaze debuted some exclusive unreleased music, which included an unreleased official remix of the song featuring a verse by rapper Busta Rhymes.[4]
